Western Main Campus

Faculty of Engineering - Mechatronic Systems Engineering

Admission Requirements

The Mechatronic Systems Engineering and Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering (option E) is a limited-enrollment program. Upon completion, students will receive two degrees: a BESc in Mechatronic Systems Engineering and a BESc in Artificial Intelligence Systems Engineering (non-accredited). Admission to Option E is competitive; meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Students apply to Option E while in first-year through the Intent-to-Register process. To be eligible for Option E, all of the requirements of the first-year curriculum in the Faculty of Engineering must be completed with a minimum yearweighted average (YWA) of 75%.

Module/Program Information

Students who entered the Engineering Program in September 2021 will continue to follow their original AISE program progression. MSE students who entered their progression in September 2022 will also have to follow their original AISE program progression.
